CYNTHIA GUDGER IS STILL HOARDING CATS! PLEASE DNA HER. PLEASE DO NOT ENABLE AND HELP HER. Gudger is described by many as one of the worst animal abusers - Cynthia Gudger tortures animals. She feeds living kittens to hungry Pit Bulls. She chains dogs to cabinets so tight they cannot move. She doesn't feed all of her animals so they starve to death. She breeds dogs and cats and performs surgeries while they are awake. She beats dogs with a cane. Her animals died horrible deaths. She has put animals in the freezer, while they are still alive, and they freeze to death. Her animals were so neglected they had fleas and roaches crawling all over their bodies. This is just some of the information taken from court documents, in both Kern County and Riverside County where she was convicted of felony animal cruelty. A slap on the wrist was her punishment. After serving 2 years in a mental facility, she was released in 2010 and placed on 5 years probation, prohibiting her from any contact with animals. Her ...

PLEASE HELP US STOP A HIGH PROFILE ANIMAL HOARDER Kimi Peck, 65, is actively 'rescuing' animals. She is actively collecting dogs and donations from a fraudulent website. What Kimi Peck does not want you to know or see is her documented history of animal related neglect. Here are pictures of the illegal kennels Kimi Peck referred to as 'sanctuaries', from 2005 thru present. Every single 'sanctuary', including the most recent one - a fifth wheel - has been legally shut down. Peck has been booted out of a number of California counties because of her animal hoarding including Los Angeles, Burbank, Kern County, San Bernardino. In the past year, Kimi Peck was booted out of Weld County, Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming. Also in 2014, Peck was forced to surrender over 50 neglected dogs and puppies (born on Peck's watch) to Cheyenne authorities and Weld County charged Kimi Peck with animal cruelty. And going back a few years to 2010, Peck was forced to surrender close to 200 neglected animals to Kern County An ...

Diverting millions of gallons of water to frack in California during a drought is a terrible idea! Help us stop it. Dear Neal, It’s ridiculous! California is facing a record-breaking drought. Communities are struggling, and ugly battles over water use are resurfacing. Yet despite this extreme drought, in recent months, California has rubber-stamped permits for new fracking oil wells throughout the state—more than 140 in one oil field in Kern County alone—without ANY environmental review. My team and I are fighting in California to stop more than 200 new oil wells that will have significant environmental impacts, but we need your urgent help to see this and other critical battles through! In a time when our rivers, lakes, aquifers, and other water sources are extremely stressed, we can’t afford to pollute and waste our most precious resource: water. Fracking is a drilling technique that injects millions of gallons of highly pressurized, chemically-laced water underground to fracture rock formations ...

FIRE SEASON: Second Fire Management Assistance Grant Secured in 24 hours for Way Fire in Kern County
For Immediate Release August 16, 2014 On Saturday, August 16, 2014 at approximately 6:24am, the Bakersfield Police Department received a 911 call from a residence in the 3000 block of Catalina Drive. The caller, Loren Johnson 55 of Bakersfield, told the 911 operator he shot his wife. Officers responded to the location and contacted Loren Johnson in the driveway of his residence. Johnson was taken into custody without incident. Officers located the victim inside the residence suffering from several moderate to major gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The firearm was recovered. Loren Johnson was subsequently booked into the Kern County Jail for attempt murder. The victim’s condition was later downgraded to non- life threatening. Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to call the Bakersfield Police Department at (661) 327-7111.

For those of you who are new to the page, we work many programs in the community which incorporate our goal of helping dogs, helping people and The Mission of Kern County is one of these programs. Every Friday we attend the mission to help with the men's and women's recovery programs by taking some rescue dogs and having them interact with one another whether it be training the dogs, bathing them or just snuggling with them and talking. Our goal is to help teach life skills to the men and women using the dogs. We do this with high hopes of helping them through the program and by giving them education and training knowledge about dogs, which could lead to ...

It'll be two years this month since we adopted out Abilene. If you'll remember, she came to us in terrible shape-- pregnant, tick infested and near death. Miraculously, my Dad stumbled upon her just as she was giving birth. What he thought was a dead rat was actually a baby Saint! She is a prime example of how breeding and breeders have gotten out of hand in Kern County. We did some research and found that she came from a supposedly "reputable" breeder, which I guess they'll all refer to themselves as. She was one of eight Saint Bernard's that we rescued from the Shelter in Kern County that Summer. If breeders did simple follow ups to guarantee their offspring were spayed or neutered, we could avoid the needless death and exponential unwanted reproduction of countless dogs. There is no need to allow the "option to breed" for people who are purchasing dogs. It simply results in breeding by people who shouldn't be breeding. I am aware of contracts that require "rules" but there is little to no follow throug ...

I have been with media for most of the day speaking about the billboard that went up this morning. Tonight and tomorrow morning Magdalene Hope, KCAHT and The Alliance Against Family Violence will be featured on Fox 58 KBFX at 10 pm and ABC 23 KERO & CBS 29 KBAK @ 11 pm and again in the morning on their am news shows, please watch or set your DVR's.

It is my hope and prayer that many will be brave enough to reach out for help from this collaboration. A special thank you to all of my friends who have of their time, talents and treasures towards this vision.

Kern County is the most-fracked county in California by a wide margin. This region also has the worst air quality in the nation, as well as highly elevated rates of cancer and respiratory illness. For the people that live here, fracking means more oil extraction, more crippling climate impacts, and more impacts on their health. But residents of Kern County are fighting back. They've invited California Governor Jerry Brown to come see the impacts of fracking for himself. Join them and sign the petition to Governor Brown here:

Don't get hurt or need emergency services in Kern... Supervisors Approve Sharp Ambulance Rate Hikes Bakersfield, CA - An ambulance ride in nearly all of Kern County will cost substantially more after Tuesday. County supervisors on Tuesday approved substantial rate increases for Hall Ambulance and Liberty Ambulance -- the two companies that have exclusive rights to serve most of the county. Hall Ambulance basic life support and advanced life support rates will increase by $311 to $1,420 a trip. Its advanced life support base rate -- the one paid by people whose lives are in danger -- will go up $345 to $1,660. In total, the cost of an average Hall Ambulance trip will go up around 16 percent, county officials told the board. That's substantial because Hall Ambulance is the only service most county patients can use. Delano Ambulance serves the cities of Delano and McFarland and a strip of territory that runs east and west along the northern border the county. Liberty Ambulance serves the Indian Wells Valley, ...
SLO is Central Coast and Kern County would be Central Valley, IMO. San Bernadino's SoCal.
...and Governor Jerry Brown *still* thinks fracking is a good idea?! It is time for him to face the facts on fracking. We are calling on the Governor to visit Kern County, the most fracking part of the state and also an area very affected by the drought. Join us

Many unwanted dogs don't have that lucky break (especially they are pits and big dogs). It's best they are not born. * If you have pits, pitX, big dogs at least 40 lbs, OR puppies of BIG breeds, sign up here *

We had a blast representing Marley's Mutts at the The Mission at Kern County's 5K run, MISSION POSSIBLE! Julie brought Sophie, and Daryn and I traded off running with Fred. It was so awesome to see the ladies (who work with the dogs and us each week), determinedly burning rubber on the soles of their running shoes; steadfastly moving forward on the beautiful Hart Park/CALM track...forward with their lives. Proud of you all! And thankful for the Mission's inviting us to join in the celebration! -- Liz
Mayor Harvey Hall will make a difference for Kern County kids this Make your pledge
The oil companies are now and have been for some time buying up properties and leases all over Kern County in search of ways to make gas extraction profitable for them. They are testing various fracking techniques in order to find the proper chemical combination for profitability. Just thought I might try to give you a heads-up Kern. I realize I am whistling in the wind, but I can't just let it go. You, your children, and your grandchildren are in harm's way. Good luck.

The long-promised PCT segment surveys are up and running! You can be extremely helpful in giving us any info on parts of the PCT you're familiar with. This info will allow us to talk specifically with the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, non-federal agencies, and private landowners about programs for PCT bicycle use (pilot programs where the no-bikes rule is in effect and PCT-benefitting volunteer maintenance and other land stewardship endeavors where there is no PCT bicycle ban). The first survey of a potentially desirable PCT stretch runs from a back road south to Highway 58 in Kern County, Calif. This is a remote area. The second is a much less remote section of the PCT that runs down to the north bank of the Columbia River near Portland, Ore. From on-site inspections we have done in the last year, we think this would be a prime segment of delightfully rideable PCT! Let us know what you think! Begin by visiting our website and following the survey links. Thank you in advance. www.SharingThePC ...
WEDNESDAY KERN COUNTY WEATHER- Temperatures took a tumble on Wednesday, down more than 15° from Tuesday as a cold front passed by. Rainfall tallies were respectable but generally less than a tenth of an inch in the south valley. Mountain locations saw more moisture and some snow above 5,000'. Tehachapi and vicinity picked up between a quarter and a half inch of rain. Higher elevations of Bear Valley Springs saw 2-3" of snow. The Lake Isabella area enjoyed even more rainfall, generally a half inch to one inch. The most impactful element of this storm has been the very strong winds in eastern Kern County that brought 76 MPH gusts to the Inyokern airport and near zero visibility in blowing dust and sand. A Dust Storm WARNING was issued for the Indian Wells portion of extreme northeast Kern County until 11PM this evening, including Ridgecrest and the China Lake Naval Air Station. A Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) was mistakenly sent to many cell phone users in the Bakersfield area around 12:30 this afternoon. ...
